QupZilla latest version

Wed Aug 23, 2017 11:08 am
Hello, I use as a Qupzilla web browser, is there a way to have the browser always updated in Kde Neon? In Tumbleweed there are no problems, but in Kde Neon there is an old version. I've read that QupZilla will become a KDE application, I'm happy with this choice and I hope it will improve further.
Sorry for my English.
Thanks for the work you do.

KDE Neon is just Ubuntu really, so you can use Ubuntu PPA's. I use 16.04 (Xenial) so add the Ubuntu repo for Quipzilla

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nowrep/qupzilla

Then update....
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

The install....
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install qupzilla

Bingo, qupzilla is installed and will stay updated whenever you do an apt-get update. To find this all I did was google 'qupzilla ppa' and I found the launchpad page.
https://launchpad.net/~nowrep/+archive/ubuntu/qupzilla

hmmm this looks like a pretty nice browser, never used it before, might give it a go. ^-^

EDIT: but now I see that the PPA version of qupzilla is version 1.8.9, and current version is 2.1.2. Maybe try and contact the PPA maintainer and see if there is an update coming anytime soon.

There is problem with Qupzilla 2 and above with Debian based distros, this post explains: http://blog.qupzilla.com/2016/12/qupzil ... tions.html

You can download the appimage from here: https://qupzilla.com/download#linux but it doesn't connect to webpages.


^Ignore that

Obviously I knew the ppa, the problem is that there is no latest version. This is a fantastic, fast, and easy-to-use browser on Tumbleweed (where is the latest version). So from what I understand for the moment it is impossible to have Quipzilla at the latest version of the Ubuntu & Co. Shame distributions, we hope now that KDE's official applications are changing. Thank you all

Have you tried https://www.qupzilla.com/uploads/QupZil ... 1.AppImage ?

Assuming you have the downloaded file in ~/Downloads,
cd ~/Downloads
chmod a+x QupZilla-2.1.1.AppImage
./QupZilla-2.1.1.AppImage
is all you need and it does connect to webpages. Please give it a try!
